6 FREE Online Graphic Software To Create Those Awesome Images You Need For Business

Being online you’ve got to create graphics but some of the software it requires can be expensive here is a list of free online graphic software programs that you can use in your business. These can help you make your content stand out and works really well for your own blog posts as well as the done-for-you content you purchase and use as well!

6 Free Online Graphics Software To Get Stunning Graphic Images

1. Canva

Canva offers so much in their free membership. I love Canva. It has the sizes of many different images already set – like social media posts, blog graphics, Pinterest pins, and presentation images.

Not only that, but they have quite a few templates for each size.

TIP: Be careful when you are choosing because some of them will have a $ symbol which means they cost money. Usually only $1 though, so still a great deal.

I’ve got to say that this is my go-to for free software. This year I finally upgraded to the business account but you definitely don’t have to.

I upgraded because it is easy to resize the images and it works with the direction of products my business at Niche Starter Packs is going.

I now offer Canva eCover templates for most of my done-for-you content packs. I do this so that people can easily change the name of the eBook or report, change the brand colors, rearrange the elements, add new photos and add their name on in.

This might sound like a bunch of steps, but it is SO much easier to start with a template. I love templates and use them whenever I can in my business. You might be surprised how much time you’ll save when you don’t have to start from scratch each time. One of the biggest issues that I have is “seeing” what I want to create. Then I’ll finally start to see what it is but then I’m still not done because it is a process that can take time to get just the right look.

This is why I love templates. I can usually go into a template and start moving elements around to fit what my vision for the graphic is.

You don’t have to change anything and often times I don’t – but it is nice to have that option when the look of the template isn’t quite right. A few tweaks and voila – you’ve got a unique and beautifully designed graphic that you didn’t have to spend tons of time on!

2. PicMonkey

PicMonkey is very popular. Great for collages. You can add images from Facebook, your computer and even Dropbox. They have a free, as well as a premium membership. The free offers a lot of options though.

3. Pixlr

Pixlr is the most like Photoshop. They offer layers that you can add to your graphics. Which can be nice when you want to move just one thing.

4. SumoPaint

SumoPaint is also like Photoshop. You can use online or buy the premium and download it. I like this program, but it does seem to lag a bit.

5. Piktochart

Piktochart lets you make free infographics. They offer several templates that you can use. Infographics are a huge hit for people, so your audience will love it if you create one on this site!

6. YouIDraw

I just found this one while researching, but it looks really cool. I’m going to check it out. It says no signup required and you don’t have to download it either. Plus it does vectors.

There are actually several really great FREE online graphic software. The best way to make full use of this type of program is to use it exclusively. I need to do this and really become an expert at one or two of them.

Do you have an online graphic software that you use and love? Please let me know and I’ll share.

Have a great and productive day!
